Ooo, OUCH! Johnny Depp SLAMS Actors Who Try To Get Into The Music Biz, Calls Them ‘Sickening’!

| Filed under: Music MinuteFilm FlickersJohnny DeppGIFs

Johnny Depp despises actors who try to become musicians!

Ohhh we have a feeling this remark is NOT going to go over well with some people!

Johnny Depp is a very talented actor, and he's proven to be a talented musician over the years as well!

The 51-year-old's incredible guitar skills have graced the stage, he's recorded with renowned artists like Oasis and Marilyn Manson, and of course, he's shown off his vocal skills in multiple movies.

However, Mr. Depp would NEVER, and we mean NEVERRR tap into his musical side to become a rock star.

He can't even stand the concept, and recently revealed:

"That whole idea for me is a sickening thing, it's always just made me sick. I've been very lucky to play on friends' records and it's still going. Music is still part of my life. But you won't be hearing The Johnny Depp Band. That won't ever exist.

The kind of luxury now is, anybody with a certain amount of of success, if you have a kind of musical being, you can go out and start a band and capitalize on your work in other areas. But I hate the idea, 'come see me play the guitar because you've seen me in 12 movies.

It shouldn't be (that way). You want the people who are listening to the music to only be interested in the music."

While we get what he's saying, some people are simply passionate about both acting AND singing!

For instance, technically Jennifer Lopez broke out on the big screen before having any musical success, but that doesn't make her any less of a musician! Or any less of an actress, either — she's still starring in lead roles!

And there are plenty of other examples of that as well, like Jared Leto and Hilary Duff to name a few!!

Do YOU agree with Johnny's reasoning???

    Sounds like someone wants to be the only "cool guy" in hollywood. Just cause someone got well known in one field doesnt mean they should stop aspiring to learn and share more creativit. Music is music, you asshat, stop turning it into politics… turn it up and enjoy it!

    Jennifer Lopez is NOT a musician. She is a singer. Not the same.

    I think he never said this actually. How the american press does the translation from the germany? with toaster? He said the idea of people following his music only because they have seen his movie was sickening to him and there never would be a johnny depp band. wtf! he never mentioned the word actors nor he referred to actors at all

  7. Claire says – reply to this


    Carrie D is right, a musician actually plays an instrument, the others are just singers

  8. mmm says – reply to this


    Apparently he forgot about the band he co-founded in the 90's (after becoming extremely famous as an actor ) called "P".

    I smell hypocrisy.

    Saying a vocalist isn't a musician because they "don't play an intrument." I can't even. *head explodes*

    Johnny is 100% right on this one. That is why music is so fucking terrible nowadays. Because ppl do like 7 different fuckin things they are actors, models, musicians, producers, directors and when you do that much your heart isn't really into any of it. your just a sellout doing it for the money. The days of great bands like led zeppelin and pink Floyd are long gone. Also singers are NOT musicians, and calling them musicians is insulting to real musicians. I mean cmon are Hilary duff and Jessica simpson musicians?? Fuck no. Period. Johnny is the man for not being afraid to tell it like it is.

    Too bad he didn't slam anyone.

    What he really said was, that he didn't want to exploit his fame and that there would never be a Johnny Depp ban.

    He talked about himself-and not about others. He didn't mention the word "actors" at all. Please to stop this "slam Johnny Depp" game and report something that is actually true….
